    The colour “green” means ‘romance’ to us. Lol. Yes, because he says my eyes turn greenish each time I want some … And it’s true. Lol. Am a little but shy about this but it’s so cool when he makes fun of me by calling me ‘green & wild’ and I know what he means by that. And when he is missing me dearly, he simply texts, “greeny mood” and I would just blast him with “hug transformer” Hahaha. My baby boo is very peaceful but mischievous. He loves green passionately so do i. No wonder, we are both hopelessly romantic and want to hold hands always. Our room has green walls and curtains. Lol, he will chase me round the house when he gets 2 see this… maybe I should get him green underwear for val. Wink!

    Green is the symbol of fruitfulness, the colour of fertility, a representation of a new beginning. I and my husband are presently expecting our first child and nothing better describes this upcoming chapter of our lives other than the colour green: A symbol of life. A sure sign of continuity.

    Green as a colour to me symbolises renewal and growth. It’s a lively colour which also means balance and fertility. Green pushes out my inner energy by re balancing me.

    In my relationship with my husband, we are learning to grow each day in our thinking, actions and tolerance towards one another.

    Our beautiful baby girl reminds us of our commitment and love for each other by bringing out the best in us as parents. Green also shows me how beautiful the world is and how lovely God made it.

    I love my husband, the outdoors (nature) and I love my God.

    I and my fiance will be walking down the aisle in June. The colour green aptly captures the beginning of a new chapter in our lives. It symbolizes newness, growth, harmony, freshness which describes how it will feel to be newly weds. We are currently in the planning phase and are completely ecstatic to be walking into a fresh and new start just like the colour green represents.

    The colour green symbolizes life, fruitfulness. Being married to my partner symbolizes a new beginning for us. A responsibility of helping each other to live happily and fulfilled. It also entails for us a responsibility of producing lives and nurturing the lives we have produced to withstand all hitches and hurdles so as to bear fruits when they have reached the age

    Interestingly the colour GREEN is one of our favourite colours. In fact we went green on our 10th year anniversary(our photo shoot was all green) because for us green symbolizes growth, harmony, freshness, and fertility.

    Green has strong emotional correspondence with safety. In the face of great opposition in our 12 years marriage we have stayed “green” together.

    Green has great healing power. It is the most restful color for the human eye; it can improve vision and enhance productivity.

    It took me a while to finally accept my love for green , especially lemon. Lemon is such a beautiful color. On July 18 2015, I traveled to the east for a job that day, people told me I shouldn’t go rather I should celebrate, but how can I ? when there’s money to be made?. I ignored the fact it was my birthday until I got the text. It’s reads” Dear viv, I’m writing this in lemon green because I know you love it. Happy birthday.God has an amazing plan for your life. I love u my amazing girl❤️.It was written on a black background in green , I cried, softly tho before people think I had lost it. It meant the world to me, Now that’s my friend and “bae”. She’s the best , yes she ?. We’ve been friends for years, Met in school and were roommates for 5yrs in the same room . If u know me , you would know she deserves an award. Now our relationship is not romantic but I appreciate her support, that’s why I’m applying for this. Knowing fully well we don’t have dates or plans for Val’s , being single and it would be nice to win something to celebrate our friendship.

    Green is a beautiful colour. It symbolizes nature, stability, strength and originality. All these qualities portray the core values of my relationship with my boyfriend.
    Our chemistry is so natural, like it was definitely meant to be. Stability in a relationship is something everyone should have and I’m blessed to be in a very stable and firm relationship. Out of the love radiating from my relationship I draw the strength to face the daily challenges of life because i know I’m not alone and finally I truly admire our originality as a couple. It’s beautiful and admirable.
    I couldn’t have picked a better day to send my entry because the colour green is symbolic to my beautiful relationship.

    Green means nature and life, My current relationship gives me life each day. My marriage with my baby boo is natural ordained, I found fulfilment in him and he does too. There wouldn’t be love if there isn’t a life, So been greeny simply means staying alive to celebrate each other, I honestly appreciate mother nature for making the lane green for all to love and enjoy each other.

    The freshness of air inhaled early in the morning when watering the garden. The nutritrious meal prepared with fresh vegetables. The healthy smothies made from fresh fruits. The soft carpet grass we walk on when strolling around the compound.

    The colour Green in my relationship is a reminder of the freshness of our relationship each passing day.

    The Colour Green is a very special colour that encompasses everything,It means Growth,abundance,vibrancy and a breadth of fresh air. For us as a married couple, it is a symbol of growth, as we age each day, to overlook each other’s mistakes and look into our strength as a family. To thank God for the breadth of fresh air each new day in our young life knowing that the grey years are coming,when the nest will be empty and our most active pleasurable organs will be just like ornaments that hangs on the christmas tree every December.

    Green denotes life and growth to me. My relationship has to be themed green because i have seen it grow from a state of nothingness to a very desirable valuable state. When we are talking about colour green, we are talking about nothing but growth, awareness of something better and a hope to see things move from nothing to something. It is needed in our everyday life. We all need to grow at some point in our lives and live in a inspired environment. Green all the way!
